A key element in a city’s attractiveness is the ability of its residents to travel safely and efficiently. Sweco’s infrastructure experts have what it takes to design transport systems that simplify people’s everyday lives. By designing everything from roadways, railways and underground metros to bridges and travel centres, we improve accessibility in tomorrow’s communities and cities.
Modern public transport and infrastructure requires rigorous demands on safety. In Sweden there are several large-scale national infrastructure investments underway that will introduce both increased travel and new technology, which will bring challenges but also opportunities for innovative solutions.
Sweco’s experts in risk management and safety for rail bound traffic work daily with risk analysis and assessments in connection with rebuilding and new construction of railway infrastructure, on behalf of both government and private infrastructure owners.
We have specialists with expertise in the risk management and safety area that assist railway companies, manufacturers and managers of infrastructure that need to get their vehicles, systems, components and facilities approved in accordance with national and international norms.
The areas we focus on include technical safety management in signalling systems, technical safety in management of railway superstructure, permitting matters, the Swedish Transport Agency’s authorisation process, risk analysis, electrical and traffic safety, the work environment in construction projects, development and independent assessment.
